Pours a nice amber red color with 1" white head with big foamy bubbles. Malt smell but nothing to big. Tastes of malt, some caramel, toast, a little bitterness and iron at the end. Mouthfeel is smooth and with a little carbonation, easy drinking.

Overall, an ok beer I would drink in a pinch but Central Waters has some way better offerings than this. Worth trying but don't go out of your way to get it.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date of November 26, 2013 per the bottleneck, 33013. Another new beer to me from Central Waters. I'm not entirely sure what to expect, but I have great faith in these guys.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice fiery orange color with some red highlights when held to the light. About a finger of bubbly foamy khaki head. Some nice big lacing. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is nice, but sort of lacking. Caramel / amber malt, some mustiness, lightly grainy, lightly soapy, some green apple skin. Faint nuttiness. Light floral / earthy hop presence.

T - Taste is of smooth clean bready caramel / amber / red malt, light earthiness, lightly grainy, & some sticky green apple skins on the finish. Faintly metallic.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Somewhat thin and watery. Light-bodied with good carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall, it is certainly an easy drinker, but it falls short of greatness. Definitely a less than memorable offering from Central Waters. Light and easy to drink, but it has poor depth and duration of flavor. Glad to have tried it, but I wouldn't want it again.

Central Waters Ouisconsing Red Ale ---3/5.
